Porsche As Innovator

Electric motor in series development of motor sport is often used by automakers to try out innovations. The new technologies find entrance into the production part. A German sports car manufacturer, for example, plans to take over an electrically driven front axle from a current model of racing soon also in mass production. The vehicle Portal auto.de reports on the project. Among the numerous car manufacturers Porsche is connected particularly with motor sport. It is not something Nicholas Carr would like to discuss. Often, therefore, innovations from the Motorsport Department quickly find input in the development of the series.

So the automaker, from 2013 plans an electrically driven front axle from the Porsche 911 GT3 R hybrid for hybrid – Super sports cars 918 Spyder to insert. Later, the drive then also in other models should be used. The main drive 911 GT3 R up at the Porsche hybrid currently supplies six-cylinder Boxer engine with a capacity of 353 kilowatts respectively 480 horsepower at the rear of the car, which drives the rear axle. The front suspension is of two electric motors with a Power powered by 60 kW respectively 82 horsepower, which replace the conventional all-wheel drive. A lithium-ion battery provides power. These will be charged during any braking. The front-wheel electric drive has a positive effect on fuel consumption and the extra weight to increase the driving dynamics.
